roasted cauliflower

I am so happy I tried this, we have fixed it three times now.  Each time it is a bit better.  I have not added any other flavors yet, but I do plan too.
I break it up a bit into bite (big) sized pieces.  And simply toss with olive oil and Kosher salt and black pepper.
Hot oven, I set mine for 450, but some say 400 to 500 degree's.  I am still playing with that.  I add foil to the pan for 10 minutes, then remove it.  The cauliflower roasts for 30 minutes.  But I would imagine, this is by size of the pieces.  Be careful and check it often.
You may want to leave this part out, I opted for a glass of wine while waiting.  I have pretty much given up wine for ordinary days...and leave it for special occasions, but this evening I wanted a glass.  Or two...  I do not want the added calories, and I have trouble sleeping when I indulge.
Oh my, sweet and nutty...full of flavor.
Please do take notice, the cauliflower does shrink in size, from the roasting.  So plan according to that.  I do hope you try this if you haven't already, it is so good...and very good for you!

  2. No one here but me likes cauliflower (having met Al and his picky tastes (!) you know what I'm talking about -- not adventure driven at all..and it's cauliflower for heavens sake!) but I think Evan would eat this so I'm buying some today and trying this. Might even add the glass or two of wine as well!! :)
